FINDING AN ADVOCATE (SOMEONE TO HELP) (LGBTQ)
Going through any legal process, civil or criminal, can be difficult and complicated. It can be really helpful to get support from an advocate at your local domestic violence or rape crisis program. They can help with emotional support, safety planning, help you find resources, and explain how things work in your community.
